woops, didn't see this thread for a couple of days!

I just picked up the Eagles a few months ago. I love the vintage look and they go well with whatever color jersey I happen to be wearing. They also get used twice a week, so no way am I getting rid of them.

The Hockey Shop has them in stock though. 14" and 15" sizes, iirc.
They're about two bills though, which is why it took so long for me to pull the trigger on them.



As for gear, it's part of being a goalie. Most guys I know rotate their equipment regularly. I'm in Sports Replay weekly both buying and selling gear. It's an addiction, and when I meet a goalie who has been using the same gear for a decade, I can't help but think he's not getting the full goalie experience.



I'm going through a jersey fetish right now. Just picked up an uncrested, goalie cut, white Washington Caps jersey. I would have worn it today at drop in, but the other goalie cancelled.

No way am I going against a shooter tutor again...

Landeskog. Gonna give it a shot, especially since the same guy that designed that pattern, did Easton's e28 as well.

How custom do you want to go and how much do you want to spend? Do you just want to take a stock jersey and add logos to it or do you want to go full custom?

Nothing to crazy/fancy
Good quality, standard nhl crest on the front, number on 1 shoulder, number sewed on the back, standard nhl color ex red/white.
From looking online and the options i listed something like that will cost us $70-80 each for 16 jerseys.

Yeah that sounds about right. I did a set of AK brand jerseys maybe 4-5 years ago locally with heat pressed 2 color font logo and 1 color back numbers which ran $60-65 taxes in.

Have you looked into sublimated options as well? It'll save you a bit compared to cut and sewn logos/numbers but won't look as cheap if you were to go the heat press route.

^I priced it out at the hockey shop, and it would have come close to $100/jersey for a team.
We ended up going with sublimated Firstar jerseys, and all said and done we got out of there with a cost of $65/jersey. That was at the Cyclone Taylor in Surrey.


Back to it;
I played my second week as a backup goalie for an ASHL 19+ group A team, and figured it was time to get some new gear. When buddy's slapshot feels like a gut punch from 35 feet away, you need new gear.

So I counted all the pennies in my couch cushions, and sprung for this.




Vaughn LT90 Pro spec.
After trying on the Vaughn V5, Bauer Pro, Warrior Pro, CCM 900 series, Brians Sub Zero, I found that the LT fit the best. I wore it last night for the first time, and it performed flawlessly. A couple minor adjustments, and it will be perfect.

So I say goodbye to an old friend.


More like, good riddance.....

Thanks Hypa, good to know

Ive been looking at the laga sports website and they don't show any pricing, which is annoying when there is hundreds of other sites that give you all pricing details.

Did you get a lot of stingers with your old chest protector?

I think I used that same unit in ball hockey a few years back and i was the worst for stingers.

They're good for getting rid of old gear, plus it gives me an excuse to head out and see if they have any hidden gems people have traded in.

I found that for ball or roller hockey, it was good. It has a massive 6 and 7 hole (between the arms and body) and that was one of my biggest criticisms of the unit. On the ice though, anything over 75mph and you would feel the puck. The closer the shooter was, the more damage it would do. In anything less than C level, it's not an issue. But once you start seeing A and B level shots, it just didn't have the protection.

How the hell I ended up in an A level net is still a mystery to me. But man, these are the best hockey players that I've ever played behind. Evander Kane played with them during the lockout, and I was told that his all of his releases were top shelf/bar down, even his off balance backhand shots!

I had mine done through this shop called Mainland Athletics. They're no longer around but when I was shopping around most shops had around the same prices. I chose to go with them because I wanted to support a small shop.

For the quotes you got, were they for a fully embroidered crest? You could also save a couple bucks by going with screen printed or sublimated twill and then stitching it onto the jersey. If you go with a fully sublimated jersey and don't mind shopping online, I've heard good things about Junkyardathletic and Avida Sportswear. They're top end products but still cost around what you've been quoted so far.

Had an opportunity to try some sticks out the other day. These are the ones that I can recall using:

(As a reference, my current stick is a RBZ - 75 flex - Hossa)

1) Bauer APX2 - p92 - 77 flex: despite the overall stick being longer to what I am currently using, the blade had fantastic feel to it when handling the puck. My shot was effortless as I let the stick do pretty much all the work due to the longer length; however, I felt that my timing was really off as I prefer to put more muscle into it. The P92 shot as expected with a decent amount of pucks going just over the crossbar =/

2) Easton V9 - e28 - 85 flex: quite a sharp looking stick. This is a standard taper as opposed to the V9E (elliptical). Took a couple of shots with it and I was done - couldn't handle the curve. Great I guess for those times when you are on a breakaway and need to quickly discard the puck into the netting.

3) Bauer NXG - p08 - 87 flex: I have used a variety of sticks in my day but I realized that I have never really shot around with a Supreme. Anyways, similar result as the e28 pattern. I would need a lot of time and shoot about a hundred pucks to get used to those curves!

4) Easton V9 - e36 - 100 flex: The new e36 - verrry nice. Very 'close' to a p88 as it was just a tad longer. Perfect. Pucks went exactly where I wanted them to go. With the stiffer flex I could really lean in and put my weight into the stick and did not have to worry about my shots going over the net. For more versatility (slap shots, one-t's, etc.) I'd go for an 85 if I had the chance.

I'm sure we use all types of curves and flexes and whatnot here but I hope this helps gives some insight to anyone looking to buy a new stick in the late summer/fall!

I couldnt get used to the p08. the supreme line is fantastic for clappers, as I am a big mid flex fan. I had to sell my p08 after using it only 3-4 times. My passes and shots were going all over the place. I want to try the e28

the problem with roller hockey is that low-mid level sticks will explode after a couple games of roller because its made with a combination of carbon and fiberglass. BUT if you get a high end stick that may last a bit longer, you're spending top dollar on ROLLER hockey... catch 22 if you ask me. You're better off getting a 2 piece for roller. My base blades hold up best for roller. I can go through a solid half a season before it starts to break down somewhat.

the stick itself is $60 right now, and i'm waiting for a sale for 20% off clearance. my previous one i had lasted almost 3 seasons, until i broke it out of frustration yesterday over the crossbar. it broke rather easily which meant it was on it's last limb regardless.
